Daylight Saving Time Extension Approved

I looked up this story after hearing Hugh Hewitt discuss the Daylight Savings extension on his show today. Personally I wish Congress would make up their mind to one year-round time and be done with it. Under this plan, we will be on Standard Time only 4 months per year. Does that mean Daylight Time should be renamed Standard Time? :)

This summer, as it happens, I've been reading two interesting books on the history of Daylight Saving Time, Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time and Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time. Both books are informative, fast-paced reads on a relatively little-discussed topic which affects everyone.

Friday Update: USA TODAY quotes both of the above-named authors in their news coverage of the Daylight Saving issue.
